There are various risks associated with having depression if your loved one is 65 or older. Depression increases the risk of cardiac diseases, death from the effects of other illnesses, and a reduced ability to rehabilitate. Even if you feel your loved one has mild depression, it’s important to seek treatment, even if your loved one denies that they are depressed.
Many causes of depression stem from living alone or lacking a supportive social network. As adult children, not being able to visit your Elderly loved one as much as you’d like is understandable. The hustle and bustle of work, raising your own family, or living far away make frequent visits difficult. At A-1 Home Care, we offer compassionate and qualified caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who can be there for your loved one on a 24 hour live-in basis orhourly part-time basis.
Our caregivers must have prior experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check, DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
